For a more in depth review of yesterday’s games please check out our minor league wrap-up which can be found here. We will post the lineups today down below as they become available and also update the status of the starter for today’s Bradenton game. Brad Lincoln makes his first start of the year today and Zack Dodson tries for the third time to make his first start, West Virginia has been rained out two days in a row.

AAA: Indianapolis (0-3) VS Columbus (3-0) 2:05pm

Lincoln will be making a rehab start today

Probable starter: Brad Lincoln(1-4 6.66)

Game notes: Justin Wilson gave up 2 earned runs over 6 innings with 6 K’s in his AAA debut last night. Indy lost their 3rd straight game by 1 run. The original starter for today’s game was Daniel McCutchen but he got recalled by the Pirates when they placed Ross Ohlendorf on the DL so Brad Lincoln had his start moved from Bradenton to Indianapolis today

AA: Altoona (1-2) @ Erie (2-1) 1:05pm
Probable starter: Jared Hughes (12-8 4.42 last year for Altoona)

Game notes: Starling Marte had 4 hits including a double and stole his first base in Altoona’s 6-2 win yesterday. The Curve had 14 hits yesterday. Aaron Thompson allowed just one run on one hit in six innings in his debut in the Pirates organization

High-A: Bradenton (1-2) VS Charlotte (2-1) 5:00pm
Probable starter:  Brett Lorin (2-3 5.18 last year for West Virginia)

Game notes: Quinton Miller gave up 10 earned runs in 3.1ip while Diego Moreno struck out 3 batters in his only inning of work. Bradenton lost 14-1 just one day after winning 13-0. Brad Lincoln was the scheduled starter before the Ohlendorf injury necessitated his move to Indianapolis.

Low-A: West Virginia (0-1) VS Savannah (1-0) 1:05pm Doubleheader
Probable starter: Zack Dodson ( 2-6 4.84 last year for State College) and Tyler Waldron (4-7 3.90 for State College last year)

Game notes: Ranked 30th overall by Pirates Prospects, lefty Zack Dodson gets his first start in full season ball after being drafted in the 4th round by the Pirates in 2009. The Power were rained out last night for the second time in a row and will make the game up today as part of a doubleheader with two 7 inning games. Waldron was the original scheduled starter for yesterday while Dodson gets pushed back again.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
